Bus information

The two bus companies that service Glenwood High School are Busways and Hillsbus.

Students who qualify for free student travel through the School Student Transport Scheme (SSTS) have been issued with a pass for whichever of these two companies they submitted an application for.

Students are only entitled to free travel from the bus company that issued their pass. Bus companies are not required to honour each other's passes. The reason for this is that all bus companies, that provide school travel, receive the government transport subsidies, SSTS, based on the number of passes issued.

They do not receive a subsidy for students who have not been issued passes for their company. As a result, bus companies assign school bus services according to the number of passes they have issued.

In order to ensure safety, Glenwood High School has established an afternoon procedure that allows students with SSTS passes to board buses first, followed by paying students. This ensures that those students for whom the buses have been provided for have been given first access and student safety is addressed. To further support this, the boarding of buses is monitored by executive staff. For these reasons, it is important to chose the company which best suits your child's needs. Glenwood High School, allocated bus routes are as follows:
